I have also tried to group and ungroup the buttons option to no avail.
Tried that also.
Just for information to any on who is kind enough to assist me with this issue:-
I am very experienced IT user/administrator and I have used all the knowledge that I have to try and solve my issue. What I'm looking for is something that I may have not been tried or may have missed.

To all that tried to help, THANK YOU !!!!!!!! My issue is now resolved. I did a search for the issue on google and got lots suggestions for fixes. All the best fixes for Xp problems are listed at this site: -
